Claudio Puntin (clarinet); Wolfert Brederode (piano); Mats Eilertsen (bass); Samuel Rohrer (drums).
The Wassenaar-born pianist Wolfert Brederode studied at The Hague conservatory and made his debut in 1997 with Alternate Views. In the years following this first album, he released his own compositions and worked with Joost Lijbaart, Natasha Kurek, Susanne Abbuehl and Michael Erian. Brederode's piano playing could be called as disciplined as that of a classical concert pianist, but he is able like no other to play an unpredictable form of jazz. His music is not about solos, but focuses mainly on roomy sounds and the right dosage of notes. In Rotterdam he will share the stage with Swiss clarinet player Claudio Puntin, drummer Samuel Rohrer and Norwegian bassist Mats Eilertsen. With this quartet Brederode has so far released two albums on the famous ECM label: Currents in 2007 and Post Scriptum in 2011.
